IMPORTANT: Dues to join the Utah Headliners are just $10. We’ve been recognized by the national SPJ for training and resources we offer our journos — it’s a Hamilton well spent.

You don’t have to identify as a journalist to join. The SPJ offers a supporter membership for just $20. You still get access to journalist resources and there are discounts on trainings and conferences.
